Tomorrow is the Kilchoman #feisile day and we hope to see the Kilchoman yard packed full of whisky folk from sunrise to sunset! This yearโ€™s Feis Ile bottling is a vatting of two of our unique 100% Islay casks specifically selected by Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and bottled at cask strength - 58%. The bourbon barrel was filled in July 2008 and the oloroso sherry butt was filled in October 2009. Just 877 bottles, ยฃ90.00 each, only available at the distillery from tomorrow morning! See you then. (Sorry if you can't make it!) #kilchoman #feisilebottling #caskstrength

MOST RECENT

Surf but definitely no turf, the 8yr old was the stand out of the two and sadly only had 800 bottles available for the 2008 Islay Festival of Malt and Music. A rich and zesty sweet kind of smoke, with some lingering saltiness.

So, I tried to get a bottle of this one as well, pulled up into Bruichladdich on Feis Ile Monday. The shop's closed and someone approaching us from the mash house, telling us it's all sold out on day one. Suddenly, a car pulls up in the parking lot and this German lad's like: "You want to taste the transparency? I got a bottle in the back. You got any glasses?". The other guy's like: "if you open that bottle now you can't sell it on eBay" and the German guy says: "I don't care about selling. I care about drinking" and ripped the bottle open. And that's how I got to try the Transparency at Feis Ile.

Another limited one I tasted was the Port Charlotte Feis Ile 2017 Transparency. Bruichladdich sold out the bottles at the first "laddieday". If you want the hottest releases from Feis Ile you need to be there on its open day. This dram was another great one, it had nice balance between smoke and peat and a fruity sweetness ๐Ÿ‘

Saving this baby for later! Really enjoyed the sample I got at the Feis Ile!

I do NOT open a bar for profit and I cannot always claim to open the most expensive whiskies but I just make sure that when you're invited, you get the very best on offer in my home ๐ŸฅƒโœŒ๐Ÿป

My ๐Ÿ’ฏ post - let's make it a good one.

I didn't make Feis Ile 2017 but as soon as I saw what Bunnahabhain were producing I knew I had to have it. Fortunately @the_green_welly_stop had one in stock at a decent price which avoided the additional expense of auctions.

This is a 12Yr (not 13Yr as some people have reported... check the bottling date) peated Moine port finish - I believe aged for 6Yr in bourbon with the remainder in port pipes. It's bottled at 55.6%. After our visit to Bunnahabhain last year (see album) I've been a big fan of this distillery. The Moine Oloroso earlier this year is still my whisky of 2017. Added to my love of port and its fair to say I've got high expectations for this one.

First impressions are that this is a savoury whisky - there are red fruits present, but bitter ones, such as redcurrant. It's the equivalent of enjoying a roast dinner in a pub with an open fire roaring the corner.
Water totally transforms it - the smoke and salt is reduced on the nose which opens up to sweetness in the palate - blackberries and oranges that have been boiled in mulled wine. The finish has a hint of vanilla - creme anglaise with the blackberry dessert?
Very much a dram of two halves, but both very enjoyable. I've got a few more limited edition Bunnahabhain to review over the coming months, including the Moine Rum Finish. In the mean time, this bottle will be stashed away waiting for the temperature to drop. Winter is coming after all... Finally, thank you to everyone who has followed, liked and commented on my posts. Let's see what the next ๐Ÿ’ฏbrings

A truly great @jurawhisky #feisile edition
